|Description||The Anglo-Soviet Consultative Committee was a British suggestion, accepted by the Russians during A N Kosygin's visit to London in February 1967. It aimed at developing contacts in 'science, industrial development, health, culture, education, sport and tourism'. Thompson was asked to serve by the British Foreign Secretary, George Brown, in October 1967.|
The material consists of correspondence, committee papers, background material and Thompson's manuscript notes and jottings. Thompson labelled his own files (not retained) and some of the material 'Kosygin Committee'.
Correspondents include David Beattie (C.2-C.13).
